Laying down to nurse DD1 was easy and wonderful. We got our snuggle time and I got extra rest that I desperately needed.
With DD2 it hasn't been as smooth (mind you we're trying it earlier than I did with DD1). We're only successful about 40% - 50% of the time. When we're good, it's fine. She latches fine, snuggles in and it's wonderful. When we're not having a good day, it doesn't happen at all. She'll cry, kick, latch on and pull off. I'll try to burp her, make sure she's clean, etc. but she just won't settle in. I end up giving up and we go back to the living room to nurse on the couch with our nursing pillow. There, she latches on just fine.
Any ideas as to why?
